Space Sustainability, enabling safe, sustainable access to space

It is the start of the new year and Aaron Chin from Viaset is launching our 2024 programme.

Each of us are caring about sustainability on Earth more than ever before. Individuals and corporates are trying to reduce CO2, plastic wastes, recycling materials, green energies etc. We failed to see how some of the innovations from decades ago could have long-term effects on all lives on Earth, one good example is the amount of plastic consumption and waste handling.

We are at a critical point of repeating the same failure, in space. Space is a limited and shared natural resource that needs careful stewardship, like other precious natural resources on Earth. Space sustainability depends on understanding and working within the constraints associated with each form of harm associated with misuse of those resources. 58,000 satellites are expected to be in space by 2030, more than 10 times the current number of active satellites. The vast majority of these satellites are or will be in Low-Earth Orbit (LEO). We risk saturating the capacity of those orbits within this decade. So how do we make a sustainable space with everyone has access to space for decades?

This lecture will highlight the importance of space sustainability and what the industry is doing to address the problem.  

Aaron has over 20 years of experience in the aviation and space industry. He works for Viasat (ex Inmarsat), a global leader in satellite communications, as Senior Technical Sales Manager for the Asia Pacific region. For the past 8 years, Aaron has helped many airlines in the region to offer In-Flight Wi-Fi services to their passengers and improve flight operational efficiency through the use of satellite communications. Aaron has an Engineering degree in Aerospace Avionics and recently graduated from his MBA in 2021.
